Oh bullshlt! Hahaha! Are you saying he is wrong? Or are you just living in denial that he thinks limiting your access to weapons is fully acceptable. He is saying just exactly what I was telling you. You will do whatever society decides we want to do.

Post Re: Antonin Scalia: There Are 'Undoubtedly' Limits To A Person's Right To Carry Guns

Given Scalia's overall perspective and comments on other cases, this doesn't surprise me...
Scalia, to some extent, is an idealogue. And while the right no doubt enjoys his literal views on many issues, there are also some other consequences (like the above) which I'm sure they'll be annoyed with...

"Some undoubtedly are [permissible] because there were some that were acknowledged at the time" the Constitution was written, Scalia said. He cited a practice from that era known as "frighting," where people "carried around a really horrible weapon just to scare people, like a head axe or something. That was, I believe, a misdemeanor."
Seems a clear substantiation for restriction of other weapons which could be recognized as "frighting", like assault weapons...

Same deficiency over and over again.
They fixate on the buzz-phrase that gives them that warm fuzzy, and they don't read any more which might scare them...

Inevitably, they get confused by things like the actual outcome of the 2012 election, but why change your ways if they help you think you're right?

I'm not sure what the point here is. There is nothing Scalia said to disagree with. Most 2nd amendment proponents recognize the need for SOME carry restrictions--one can't walk around on the street carrying a rocket launcher for instance. This is why most states use CONCEALED carry as their standard.

Oh you can pretend you don't get it but there are about a mile of posts here arguing against his comments. Now that he has said what I have been saying all along you have no issue. Great!

I'm pretty sure the ban of assault weapons and limit of clip size can be upheld as constitutional, so I'm not worried either.

Funny, The right doesn't know what to do with this. They have been promoting Scalia so long that they have no response.

Soo...he's talking about carry restrictions? So ****ing what? I don't know anyone who really gives two ****s about carry restrictions.

But he's still a 'tard.

Perhaps you should educate yourself about firearms before making statements like this. An "assault weapon" is a weapon capable of fully automatic or burst fire, I'm pretty sure your talking about semi-automatic rifles. Rifle "clips" rarely hold more that 8 or 10 rounds like the n-bloc clips used in the M1 Garand or the stripper clips used on rifles like the British SMLE. However, I'm pretty sure your talking about "detachable magazines" like those used on the AR-15 or the M1A.

Also, your wrong about the constitutionality of the bans.
